Vegapunk Fansubs is officially shut down. We've lost our manager/leader, our website (the
URL now goes to a Swedish porn site, so be warned), our ftp server where all of our subbing
materials were stored, and our motivation. I finally heard from Hedi yesterday. He also
hasn't heard anything from Kuzan since May, and we have lost touch with most of the other
staff as well. Neither of us has the time/energy or desire to try to pick up the pieces and
continue without him. So this is it. There will be no more releases of any kind from
Vegapunk Fansubs, nor will the website return.
You can still get our hardsub releases by torrent from here:
And our .ass scripts from here:
But I can't promise how long they will be available, so if you want anything, it's better to
download it as soon as possible.
The official Vegapunk raws are no longer available, but you can get raws to use with our scripts from here:
http://cyb3rfr34k.myftp.org/ (go to the torrents section, and get the torrent ONE_PIECE_001_400_INCLUDING_ALL_MOVIES_OVA'S_&_SPE CIALS_(DVD_HDTV).torrent).
As for the Vanillapunk releases, you are on your own.
I've heard that our IRC channel #firstname.lastname@example.org still exists, so you may be able to get some help finding things by asking there.
I'm sorry things had to end like this, but this is often how it is with subbing a long
series (e.g. Gerusama, ADC). Still I am glad we were able to provide almost 50 episodes of hardsubs plus another 25 or so of softsubs as well as being one of the first groups to release HD fansubs as well as to provide our softsubs scripts for people to watch with the raws or
translate into other languages. And, I feel the new episodes are in good hands with
Funimation, Yibis, and Shin-Nakama. Anyway, thank you again to all of the loyal fans and
staff that made Vegapunk Fansubs possible.
As a parting gift, here is the custom font that VP used for the episode titles. It's not
perfect, and it is missing a few special characters, but it matches Toei's font much better
than what any of the other groups are using, so anyone please feel free to use it for
whatever. It was created by zkx, so if you do is it, please give him credit somewhere.
Also, since Kuzan had been wanting us to eventually become an open source fansub group, here are all of the subbing materials that I was able to salvage, minus the raws. It includes all of our fonts, and all of our work on the Thriller Bark arc that I was able to get ahold of,
including typesetting and some special effects material. Again, feel free to use any of it
as you please, but if you do, please give credit to Vegapunk Fansubs somewhere.
Sorry it is only on SendSpace for now - I have a very slow net connection at the moment, and I am about to move and will be offline for about 2 weeks, so if anyone wants this uploaded somewhere else, please PM me, and I will try to get it to you as soon as I can.
